In and out-of-class experiences
The students we feature in this issue represent a range of majors and a variety of in-class and out-of-class experiences including working on campus as peer advisers, service learning with community organizations, participating in the Undergraduate Research Program, and joining the departmental honors program. Transfer students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in all that the UW has to offer. It is important for transfer students to be ready to take advantage of these opportunities soon after arriving at the university as some programs, such as study abroad, often have early deadlines. Check out the options for expanding your education that the UW offers by viewing such websites as the Center for Experiential Learning and Diversity, The Husky Leadership Initiative, Study Abroad, and the Career Center.
As with every issue of the newsletter, there are announcements and updates from major departments and from the Admissions Office. We hope you enjoy reading about the experiences of a few of our transfer students and that their stories inspire you to seek out opportunities that will enhance your bachelor’s degree and your educational experience when you transfer to the UW.
